Who are the Sharks regular season MVPs?
A final "Season Review" offseason post looking at Anaheim's two netminders -- J.S. Giguere and Jonas Hiller. With so many changes to the Ducks' defense, which goalie will become the #1 starter?
Well, just like with the end of my forward series, I'm going to do a dirty dump of all non-Niedermayer defensemen who are trying to earn spots on the 2009-10 Anaheim Ducks. Text
Season Review: Scott Niedermayer. There may not be a more critical player to the Anaheim Ducks' success next season than Captain Experience -- every other blueliner is new to the team. Niedermayer led a successful Prongerless defense in 2006; can he do it again three years later?
A brief look at the depth forwards on next year's Anaheim Ducks -- Nokelainen, Brown, Carter, Christensen, Parros, and Artyukhin.
Season Review: Andrew Ebbett -- the little guy stepped up last year to be a useful 2nd-line center for the Anaheim Ducks, but with some new players arriving, will Ebbett be an everyday forward for next year's team?
